Nymbl is committed to helping you achieve your best health, free from falling. This week, we’re discussing foot health and your balance.
As you age, your feet change and become less flexible. This may be the result of many things, such as arthritis, calluses, diabetes, and more. Because your feet are the first line of defense between you and the ground, any changes that happen to your body may also cause a change in your balance. To help reduce your risk of falling, it’s important to check your feet regularly and schedule annual exams with your medical professional.
In addition to taking good care of your feet, a consistent and effective way to help improve your balance is with daily balance training. This is where Nymbl can help. Nymbl is a scientifically-proven¹ approach to fall prevention that makes balance training both fun and effective by combining simple body movements with brain games to challenge your body and mind at the same time. Nymbl is fully covered by your health plan and is available at no additional cost to you.
